Magiere has cultivated a reputation as the most formidable vampire slayer in the land.
Villagers everywhere welcome her with both awe and dismay, grateful to her for removing the undead menace, but finding themselves poorer for their salvation.
Magiere has never had a problem with exploiting superstition for profit.
Now, tired of this game, Magiere and her half-elf partner are ready to retire.
But Magiere has attracted the attention of vampires who recognize her true identity - even if she does not - and who fear her birthright and latent power.
They will do anything to stop Magiere from realising her true potential.

Review by wyvernfriend
The back of the book has a Kevin J Anderson quote about a mix of Lord of the Rings and Buffy the vampire Slayer, I would disagree, it's more medieval fantasy world meets Buffy, including the main character who is "fated" to fight the vampires and has to learn about her powers from a mysterious man who steers her career from behind.A readable romp and it could have stood on it's own if you left out the epilogue.There are sequels and although I'm curious I'm not sure that I'll be actively hunting them.
Review by lewispike
Book one of some... It's fantasy rather than horror despite the vampires: there are elves and so on, and people know about vampires in general, even if they're in denial.An interesting twist at first and some solid fantasy fare through the middle parts. The fight sequences are short on some detail, but nicely worked through.
